Applied Plasma Technologies, Corp. (APT) is an American S corporation with headquarters in McLean, production and test facilities in Springfield, VA (Washington, D.C. area), USA.
Company was created in 2003 on the basis of intellectual property of its co-founder Dr. Igor Matveev. Dr. Matveev is the world renown specialist with 40 years of experience in the field of plasma ignition, combustion and gasification R&D, marketing, and organization of mass production of innovative products.
APT provides customers complete range of services from idea to mass production and worldwide maintenance.
Our leading staff has accumulated over two centuries of intensive experience in development and manufacturing of plasma assisted combustion systems for marine, industrial and aircraft gas turbines, plasma generation and diagnostics.
We were the first in the world who developed and started mass production of plasma ignition systems and equipped over 15 types of gas turbines to improve their reliability and safety. Our plasma fuel nozzle became a prototype for the fifth generation fighter.
Starting from 1989 we conducted high altitude tests on three types of aircraft engines and proved unbeatable advantages of new technology for security and reliability improvement of flights.
Our Transient Arc Plasma Torch is a real break-through in plasma technologies with power up to 1 kW, which could provide dramatically extended lifetime of electrodes and wider range of operating parameters.
One more innovation is a combined cycle power plant with integrated plasma coal or sewage gasification.
The most recent and significant our development is the next generation ICP/RF plasma torch for elevated pressure operation on a variety of plasma gases with virtually unlimited lifetime and power from 30 kW to 500 kW. That is a dream plasma source for such technologies as waste, sewage, bio-mass, coal gasification, surface modifications, new materials synthesis, as boron nitride nano-tubes, powders treatment, NO and NH3 production to name a few.
